Newborn Care 101

I changed my first diaper this weekend. Now I just have to practice on a real baby. Shouldn’t be too hard huh? As a kid I was pretty good at Super Soaker fights in the school yard, so hopefully those skills apply.

Since this will be my first time as a father, I’ve been taking a bunch of classes in the community to help me prepare as much as possible. This weekend was Newborn Care 101 and I found it very helpful. I seriously had no idea what to do with the baby once we bring him home, but now I feel a little better now. Other classes that my wife and I have taken are Intro To Breast Feeding, CPR, and Labor and Delivery. The classes take up a good portion of the weekend, but I highly recommend them.

The class also got me thinking about an item that I hadn’t yet added to my todo list. An item that signifies that we are running out of time and should be ready to go any day now. This item really makes me nervous, I guess its because I know that after it is complete, the next time I will use it is when I am in a panic running out the door with my wife, but now is the time pack:
